A few weekends ago Nik's dad was out of town so we went out to lunch with his mom. We had a lovely time at our local soup and sandwich spot, Main Bread and Butter. It's wonderful to sit in the warm glow of the early afternoon sun, watching the chilling winds whip around outside, surrounded by locals who come to keep good company. It's nice to have a place to chat and peruse Mennonite postcards and...

Life has been running along quickly as of late. One of the things I love about taking pictures is that it forces me to slow down and focus in on the details of the moments I'm capturing. Last week I went outside to appreciate the late afternoon sun and snow lingering on the trees and vines.

This little vine lives in the parking lot of our apartment building. I love seeing it change through the seas...

I'm falling a bit behind, 3 days behind to be precise,  on my January resolution to do 30 days of yoga. I was thinking about stopping. I've made it farther along this year than any other year. I thought, "Maybe it's good enough and next year I will have this benchmark to pass." 

That's where my accountability partner came in! Friends, it is so good to have friends in this life. "Don't leave me...

The day before my husband and I left to see my parents for Christmas was a full fledged snow day. The world was blanketed in white, plowed, and blanketed again. Flash forward two weeks to the present, I awoke again to a world covered in a fresh layer of snow. I delight in all the snow we get here. It's a joy to look out in the night and see a beautiful glow. It's a joy to wake up to a fresh, clean...

Hello! I'm happy to present my first blog recipe to you today. 

Before you go getting too too excited, I have to say I have no way of predicting when the next one will be as this one has come entirely out of the blue. Still, I hope you enjoy and maybe even try it out!

I had a cookie exchange to go to last week and was interested in this post I found on Pinterest. Some of the ingredients were a...

We're walking in a veritable winter wonderland up here in the north! On Wednesday hoar-frost blew through town and the world became more magical by a factor of seven.

Obviously stopped by the park while I was running my errands to snap a few pictures. 

I still can't get over the beauty. The thick beautiful frost is one of the things I missed about German winters the most while living in Texas. I'm e...

 Hello everyone. I'm just popping in to say, I know I've been gone a long time. I started this blog and its associated Instagram as a way to take more pictures I was proud of and share my thoughts. I'm not here to make promises that I will be writing more often but it is my hope that I will be posting at least a bit more consistently.  I also want to share these pictures from one of our first snow...

Hey guys :) 

I realize I haven't been super consistent over here and I wanted to talk about that. In late March I finally started a job (!) which has been super great. However, having a job has also made me super busy. I completely failed at both my March and April daily goals and haven't even attempted one for May. Oops. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things for June but I think my goal wi...

Hello and happy Friday! I hope everyone is enjoying a nice three day weekend. What are you up to? Anything special going on for Easter? Hope it's a fabulous one. In the meantime Nik and I are off to the States this week: spending Easter with my parents and celebrating my cousins wedding next week! Here are a few fun things for your weekend.

This photo is a throwback to last Spring and a fun little...

Thursday was International Women's Day. The flurry of activity on Instagram got me thinking about who inspires me. I thought it would be fun, in view of March being my month of drawing, to share with you some illustrators I love, admire, and follow on Instagram. You will probably see from this list that I have a clear style I gravitate towards. I hope to be half as amazing as these artists one day...
